Charlottetown’s neighbourhood social and garden unveiling event planned for tonight has been moved indoors because of the weather.
The neighbourhood social will begin at 5 p.m. and take place in the Simmons Arena, instead of Queen Elizabeth Park where the new garden is located.
The Queen Elizabeth Park garden is the last of the seven, new signature gardens being unveiled in the city this summer as part of the city’s annual neighbourhood socials.
The gardens are spread throughout the city and each one is dedicated to a P.E.I. Father of Confederation.
The gardens are located outside at the West Royalty Community Centre, Hillsborough Park Community Centre, Centennial Park, J. Frank MacAulay Park, Malcolm J. Darrach Park, Highfield Park, and Queen Elizabeth Park.
Each garden includes a boulder with a plaque inscription about a PEI Father of Confederation, benches, floral and shrubbery displays and fully accessible walkways. The Queen Elizabeth Park garden is dedicated to John Hamilton Gray.
Posters for the neighbourhood socials and signature garden unveiling events have been distributed to the individual communities.
